    I’m stuck on the Hank Williams song (a good song, for sure)! I’d like to think I saw the light, rather than felt the heat; but either way, God is good!

  3. When I initially read this, it came at a time where something life altering happened and all I could do is SMH! Thank you for the on-time message.


  4. When I read this I immediately started singing an old Hank Williams Sr. song in my head:

    I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin;
    I wouldn’t ask my dear Saviour in.
    Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night;
    Praise the Lord, I saw the light!

    I saw the light, I saw the light.
    No more darkness; no more night.
    Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight.
    Praise the Lord, I saw the light!

    Thanks for the song that will be stuck in my head all night! Peace, Linda

  5. Awareness comes how it must, huh? Even Newton took a whack in the head to get his eureka. Thanks for the great posts!

      Same here!
      But I come to appreciate the heat too.
      I learn how to think of other ways
      to cook the ingredients of my life.
      Slow-cooked meals taste better than fast foods. lol

      that’s true.
      some are scared to death
      some are excited with life
      some are desensitized
      and i have been all 3
      at different points in my life
